The market for small-scale LNG is growing rapidly. LNG is being used more frequently to fuel ships. The need to transport LNG in smaller cargo ships and to smaller facilities is increasing, too.
With the right infrastructure and processes in place, LNG containers can be shipped on normal container ships. So, our container terminal expertise is valuable in developing facilities within which operations meet the specific requirements for the handling of dangerous cargoes, specifically LNG.
As LNG maritime consultants, we can help you assess possibilities for the whole LNG transport and value chain, from large to small-scale LNG projects. Where LNG bunkering and its facilities are involved, you can also make use of our connections within the Society for Gas and Marine Fuel (SGMF).
We have participated in many national and global technical committees including the PIANC Maritime Navigation Commission Working Group WG153B report: “Recommendations for the design and assessment of marine and petrochemical terminals,” specifically updated for LNG terminals. We are committed to the development and deployment of best practices for your benefit.
Our technical expertise is underpinned by our adoption of cutting-edge technology. You can benefit from our smart solutions like Building Information Modelling (BIM) and parametric design, liquid bulk terminal simulation (WITNESS), and a variety of other digital tools, to develop your terminal fully in line with the latest industry innovations
Over the past 20 years, we have developed an LNG Logistics Simulator which is used by us and our clients around the world.
"Simulation helps us figure out the major design issues that we couldn’t see on paper. And that means finding out what works – and what doesn’t from our terminal risk evaluations before we sink time and money into marketing and shipping opportunity assessments built on flawed thinking”
The Twinn LNG logistics simulator is a discrete event WITNESS based decision support application providing independent validation of technical assumptions, future operating rules and long-term commercial viability.
Simulation models across the value chain and throughout the project life cycle include:
We create safer, smarter and more efficient ports with a predictive decision support solution that uses real-time data and metocean forecasts to enhance vessel mooring and related operations.
When it comes to mooring, each individual port, terminal, and individual berth has different safety and operational needs. LNG terminals specifically have high safety standards and our skills and tools can help to reduce operational risk. .
With Smart Mooring, you can create the perfect overview, with decision-making for every berth on the map supported by the right levels of intelligence.
We have intimate knowledge of marine operations and infrastructure – from the technical nuts and bolts up to the strategic business advice and decision support, so we can help make your LNG terminal work.
Our LNG export and LNG import terminal capabilities include:
To create future-proof maritime facilities that will continue to thrive for decades to come, you need a combined digital, sustainable, and climate resilient strategy.
